The recurring refrain, "It can't be fought with tanks or guns, No point in banging on the drums," echoes a sentiment of looking beyond physical manifestations of conflict. The emphasis on the mind and soul as the battlegrounds in the war for lasting peace adds depth to the lyrical narrative.
The lines "Waging war for peace Is like suicide for fear of death" carry a profound weight, challenging the paradox of using destructive means to achieve a constructive end. This stark observation forces listeners to confront the contradictions inherent in the pursuit of peace through violent methods.
The lyrical wisdom reaches its zenith with the lines, "If change is ever to be wrought, There’s just one battle to be fought, I’s to relearn what’s been forgot,
No healing can be done by hurting others."
